Principal’s Message:

Hello, World’s Greatest Students, Staff and Families, 

My name is Dr. Jacob Jung, and I’m honored and humbled to be the Principal of Alvarado Intermediate School. It is truly a privilege to be part of a community where all members strive to build positive relationships to support our student’s academic, personal, and socio-emotional growth. 

Here at Alvarado Intermediate School, we are guided by a deep commitment to fostering an environment where your child can flourish academically, emotionally, and socially. We share a common belief system and vision of HONOR; we believe that all students are gifted and talented, all students have futures, everyone needs a teacher, and every day is an opportunity to be the greatest version of themselves. We expect educational excellence from every Matador as they follow the characteristics of HONOR. H - Honesty, O - Ownership, N- Never Give up, O - Open-hearted, R - Respect. 

Our goal is to work together to provide students with the best learning environment and experience. Alvarado will always be a place of service excellence and will welcome you with open arms. I am excited about the journey ahead for all of us; together, we will continue to provide a safe learning environment, building on the strong foundation of excellence and compassion that this school is known for. As a united school community, I am confident we can achieve greatness for every student every day.

If you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. We are here to assist you in any way we can. Thank you for choosing Alvarado Intermediate School as your educational partner. I look forward to a rewarding and successful year ahead. 



Jacob Jung, Ed.D.
